Majors rally falls 1 runs short
Traffic, rain, and a few Majors making some noise but ultimately the Majors would come up 1 runs short of the Cardinals 8-7.
The Majors had their ace going as Owen Boon was on the mound looking to rebound after his last outing vs the Kitchener Panthers. Boon would have one rough inning as he gave up 3 runs in the first inning before settling in and striking out 8 over 7 innings while only allowing 4 earned runs and walking 1. Braeden Ferrington would come in for the 8th inning
Kayne McGee continues to have a consistent bat for the Majors as he added 2 RBIs to his season total on his 3 hits in the contest. During the 7th inning, Tommy Reyes-Cruz worked a 2 and 2 count for a sac fly that would tie the game at the time. Myles Miller would start the 9th inning with a solo home before Byron Reichstein would get on base for newcomer Josh William who would bring the game within one with a long home run for his first of the season.
The Majors head to Guelph on Saturday for a match-up against the Royals. The team returns to Labatt Park on Friday, June 30th on Hall of Fame night vs the Welland Jackfish before continuing the tradition of Canada Day with the Majors with their 6:05 pm contest vs the Hamilton Cardinals.
